Location: Franklin, IN
Shape: Fireball
Duration:~10 seconds
Fireball traversing laterally across the sky between Franklin and Bargersville.

I was outside smoking a cigarette, looked up, and happened to notice what at first glance appeared to be a meteor but after a few seconds I realized that it was moving laterally across the sky and not "falling" in the way that normal meteors do.

By this time I also noticed that it was leaving a trail of light with a "corona" just behind the object and it disappeared from my sight after a few more seconds as it traveled north by northeast.
